Dubai hosts aviation conference

With the Gulf states and the whole region now seeing a growth of low cost airline operations it is not surprising that this part of the air transport scheme will be highlighted at the 4th annual Aviation Outlook Middle East & North Africa, at the Shangri-La, Dubai, 14-16 March.

Key speakers include Peter Hill, CEO of Oman Airways, very much a full service carrier, and at the other end of the scale and balancing things up is Mr Stefan Pichler who holds a similar position at Kuwait’s Jazeera Airways.  David Huttner, Senior Vice-President at Nyras, the London consultancy, will try and balance out the whole situation in a session entitled 'Key Sales & Distribution Challenges in the Region.'  In all over 30 speakers are lined up to debate a whole series of civil aviation related subjects over the three days of the conference.

The moving situation in Egypt, and in other countries in the region, should make it a most interesting gathering.  In six weeks' time anything could have happened. www.terrapinn.com/2011/aome/index.stm
